Nice People

August 4, 2023 - Nice People Play Dulcimers

Good Morning, Y'all!

I just got off the phone with yet "another" nice person. It is amazing how friendly people are when they call to order something fun, or something which will make their lives better.

I buy all kinds of things for Folkcraft - bulk strings, lumber, corrugated boxes (we don't make everything in-house!). Some things I order online, while other things require personal contact with the seller. And while my suppliers are cordial, businesslike, and professional, they are clearly selling no-joy products. (What size boxes do you need this week, Richard?)

When I get to talk to you all ("you all" is Yankee for "Y'all," by the way) it is usually the opposite. You're asking me questions about your next dulcimer, or ordering a new book, or something else which is fun to talk about. Something that will make you (and me) smile.

Why is that good? Because I can hear the happiness in your voices and that makes me happy. I get to go home at the end of the day with a grin on my face.

Thank you!
